Injury updates
As one Devil nears a return, two others continue to recover.

Dainius Zubrus (leg) has been skating on his own, and is expected to practice with the team as early as next week, Devils' President/CEO/GM Lou Lamoriello said Friday.

Following Thursday's 4-3 loss in the Phoenix, the Devils (32-12-1) traveled to Colorado, where they were set to battle the Avalanche on Saturday afternoon.

Zubrus last played on Nov. 19 at Nashville, when he was hurt blocking a shot. The centerman has two goals and five assists in 20 games this season.

Meanwhile, David Clarkson (leg) and Paul Martin (arm) won't hit the ice for another two weeks. Lamoriello said all precautions are being taken to ensure that both players are fully recovered by the time they get back on the ice.

Clarkson, who missed 13 games after taking a Zdeno Chara shot off his right leg on Nov. 27, returned to play in two games on Dec. 28 and 30. It was announced on Jan. 5 that he would be sidelined for an additional 2-3 weeks. The rugged right wing had gotten off to strong start before the injury with 15 points (7g-8a) in his first 23 games.

Martin, the Devils' top defenseman, has not played since taking a shot off his left forearm on Oct. 24. He underwent minor surgery on Dec. 22 after it was determined that his non-displaced fracture had not properly healed. He was expected to miss four more weeks from that point.

Martin, who was named to Team USA's 2010 Olympic squad, has two assists in nine appearances this season.
